I had one of my "strange" ideas a couple of days ago, and wanted to run it past you guys. I`m thinking of a Knatchet with about 1 1/2" of the tang exposed at the end, with a prybay / nailpuller ground into it. Kind of an emergency tool. The blade is already wide enough to dig with, and I thought this idea might make it more versatile, kind of a urban survival tool. Let me know your thoughts.

Sounds good John, I'd be tempted to make the handle 1" longer though so that you are only losing 1/2" compared to the standard version. The handle length really helps when chopping with your hand choked back !
 
This is interesting.
I've been "hinting" around about a knachet to the Wife for my birthday.
:)
 
Excellent idea Stomper! When you say "urban survival tool" I think of a Knatchet with a "tactical" kind of look, somewhat like a breaching tool. Would you take it that far?
 
Sounds like a pretty cool idea to me, John--gonna have somebody GunKote it for that extra-tactical look? I don't know, I'm torn on that suggestion :p
 
Might it be best to have the prybar edge on same as the ESEE knives HEST, it would allow a more soild grip maybe ?

i'd suggest putting the puller on the head end opposite the sharp edge and not on the butt. something mpre like a 'hawk.

i've got a Stanley FUBAR with a curved prybar at the butt and find that it digs into my hand in some grips, but it's curved.

i'd draw what i'm thinking of, but that's a little akawrd until i get new glasses.

Hi Stomper -

Kinda like you read my mind there! :D :thumbup:
:cool:

best regards -

it looks like a devil's cloven hoof. :D

i don't dislike it, but i'd be concerned about either chewing up the butt of the scales when prying or flexing the haft enough to possibly separate the scales from the steel. :eek:

not saying that it would, just that i'd be concerned about it.

if i were ordering a Knatchet, and at some point i'd like to, i'd order the original version. the lines on that are really nice.
